The new design looks very impressive. I have accounts on a few "social media" sites, and this is better than Reddit and mewe etc. Certainly fits our needs very well.

I stumbled on the "profile posts" section. What is the intention for this please? It looks like a mini-twitter!
Is the idea for quick messages, " swallow at Keyhaven yesterday"

Well today someone noticed that it can be abused as an efficient way to show their unpaid ad for birding tours to everyone ...

Nothing new, he's done that a few times.

If it's just an individual, trying to eke out a living, which this is I think, I don't really have a problem with it.

When that's ultimately to the people running to forum, whether they have a problem with someone "eking out a living" using their resources for free.

It can't be very effective advertising as I've not seen it at all - I've no idea who or what you're referring to 😂

I see, these things don't show up from all access angles :) I read BF by clicking "what's new", which shows me, well, what's new - and a part of it that it shows the list of the latest "profile posts", the newest of which is currently an ad for tours in Africa.
